Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams discusses his study on the California drought. "From a method standpoint, it’s a big advancement," he says. "It’s the first time I know of that data has been parsed apart this way for any drought on the planet."
Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams explains how global warming has worsened the California drought, now entering its fourth year.
In a new study led by Park Williams, researchers found that unusually hot temperatures attributable to anthropogenic climate change intensified the California drought.
California can blame about a fifth of the state’s record drought on climate change, says a new study led by Lamont's Park Williams.

Climate change has made the California drought measurably worse - likely between 15 and 20 percent, says Lamont's Park Williams.
Human-caused global warming has measurably worsened California's crippling drought, according to a new study led by Lamont's Park Williams.
A new study led by Lamont's Park Williams is the first to put numbers to the idea that increasing heat drives moisture from the ground, intensifying drought conditions in places like California.
Man-made global warming has made California's historic drought 15% to 20% worse than it would have been and will likely make future droughts even worse, a new study led by Lamont's Park Williams says.
Microscopic, ugly diamonds from the Northwest Territories are illuminating how diamonds are made. A new study involving Lamont's Yakovv Weiss explains.
Glacial earthquakes could help us measure how much ice is lost from glaciers around the world, Lamont-Doherty's Meredith Nettles says.
The quake struck along a branch of the Ramapo Fault, said Lamont's Won-Young Kim. Such small earthquakes happen in the region every few years, he said.
Ocean currents could have carried debris from a missing Malaysia Airlines flight around the Indian Ocean to Reunion Island, says Lamont's Arnold Gordon.

Almost 20 years ago, NASA researchers began developing the Messenger probe, which would photograph the entire surface of Mercury. Lamont-Doherty Director Sean Solomon discusses the mission he led.
Lamont-Doherty's Peter Kelemen breaks down the process of oil formation for NBC News.
Fog and clouds play a vital role in keeping coastal temperatures down. But that benefit could be disappearing. Lamont-Doherty's Park Williams explains.
In a new study, Lamont-Doherty's Peter Kelemen assesses how much carbon is taken up by the Earth’s crust during hydrothermal processes at or near mid-ocean ridges, and how much carbon is released into the atmosphere through volcanic degassing and diffuse venting.
